Reports, Forms and Recordkeeping Requirements; Agency Information Collection Activity Under OMB Review, 25887-25888 [E6-6626]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 71, No. 84 / Tuesday, May 2, 2006 / Notices system, produced by multiple programmers, function properly together and in accordance with the specifications. The central site programming is expected to take between two and three years to complete. State Application Programming (June 2007–March 2009) In parallel to the central site programming, the States will initiate their programming effort to incorporate the newly added or modified CDLIS business functions into their applications. Each State will be responsible for developing and executing its own project plan at all levels (that is, coding, unit testing, integration testing, etc.) of the CDLIS modernization project. Note: Duration for the application programming will vary from State to State. The plan uses approximately four years as the overall duration for all of the States to complete the application programming. 4. Acceptance Testing (June 2007– March 2009) As the integration testing in the programming stage nears completion, AAMVA will begin formal acceptance testing of the software for the modernized CDLIS Central Site. In parallel with this activity at the central site, States will conduct acceptance testing of the code at the State level to support the modernized CDLIS. The States will execute specific test scenarios to ensure that the CDLIS Central Site functions in accordance with the specifications. rmajette on PROD1PC67 with NOTICES 5. Develop State-Structured Test Plans (October 2008–March 2009) States will complete coding and testing at the State level, but this code will need to undergo structured testing by AAMVA before it can be placed into the modernized CDLIS environment. This ensures that a State’s code works properly according to the specifications and prevents the possibility of faulty State code disrupting the entire CDLIS environment. Structured testing is a series of test cases designed by AAMVA that a State must successfully execute in order to have its code certified for production. This activity covers the design of the test cases and data by AAMVA to support structured testing. 6. State-Structured Testing (March 2009–December 2010) This activity is the implementation of the State-structured test plans developed in the previous activity. It includes the actual structured testing of their modernized CDLIS code by each VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:18 May 01, 2006 Jkt 208001 State. AAMVA and State personnel will work together to execute the structured test cases and to monitor the results. After a State completes the required structured testing, its code can become part of the modernized CDLIS environment. All States are projected to have completed structured testing and to be operational in the modernized CDLIS production environment by December 2010. 7. Network Upgrade To Provide Encryption (May 2006–April 2009) The original CDLIS was developed when computer technology was much less sophisticated and the methods and techniques of those seeking to illegally access or damage data systems were less advanced. A modernized CDLIS must include additional precautions to safeguard its operation and to ensure that the data it manages is not compromised. This task covers the activity needed to provide encryption of the data traveling across the network as it is communicated from State to State in the normal operation of CDLIS. 8. Grant Management (2007–2010) Modernizing CDLIS at the State level requires time, resources, and budgetary support. States can submit a plan to FMCSA to identify the scope of the activity at the State level required to modernize CDLIS and to quantify the amount of assistance required. Following approval, FMCSA will manage the invoicing and reimbursement activity associated with the States accomplishing their plans for modernizing CDLIS. 9. Consultation With Safety Representatives SAFETEA–LU specifies that in developing the plan, FMCSA will consult with representatives of the motor carrier industry, State licensing agencies, and State safety enforcement agencies. Consistent with this requirement, FMCSA has worked closely with AAMVA to develop this plan and will request its assistance in managing the project. Additionally, FMCSA has contacted a variety of interested safety representatives, including the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance, International Registration Plan, Inc., International Association of Chiefs of Police, New York State Department of Motor Vehicles, International Brotherhood of Teamsters, American Trucking Associations, Owner-Operator Independent Drivers Association, National Tank Truck Carriers, Inc., American Bus Association, United Motorcoach Association, National PO 00000 Frm 00077 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 25887 Conference of State Legislatures, and the National Governors Association to request their participation in reviewing the modernization plan. The national organizations expanded the consultative and review process by sharing our plan with their membership. Comments received were supportive of our efforts and plan.
